Dr. Andrew Weil is a renowned name in the field of nutrition who focuses on integrative nutrition (mainly the idea that food's healing properties are a more effective option than that of most over the counter medications) and its role in overall wellness.
Yesterday I was at Whole Foods browsing the food bar section and after picking out my usual (Clif Nectar chocolate walnut bars, Lara key lime pie bars, Pure chocolate brownie bars), I spotted a new product -- Nature Path's Dr. Weil's pure fruit and nut bars.
The banana manna flavor caught my eye. Three ingredients (organic dates, organic dried bananas, and organic almonds), 180 calories, four grams of fiber, sodium-free, no added sugars of any kind, six grams of heart-healthy fats, and ten percent of the daily potassium recommendation!
There are four other flavors, including pistachio-nut and chocolate-coconut.
By the way, chocolate-flavored fruit and nut bars are a great way to indulge a chocolate craving.
They contain pure cocoa, which is naturally sugar-free and provides an intense taste comparable to that of conventional dark chocolate.
I always make sure to have some in my office desk drawer and my backpack.
